The Impact of a Taste for Equal Opportunity.
Feasley, Charles E.
The purpose of the study described here was to identify indices of state efforts to promote equal opportunity in higher education that might have influenced state appropriations. In addition, an attempt was made to discover common economic and demographic characteristics of the 50 states that appear to influence state egalitarian efforts. The models that resulted are based on human capital theory and created by multiple regression analysis. They explain the relationships between state economic, demographic, and policy action characteristics and the level of state financial investment in higher education for fiscal year 1968-69 and were tested on data from later years. Several data charts are appended, and a brief bibliography is included. (MSE)
